The Emerald Heart Winter Retreat in Lanzarote January 2014
Dear Emerald Heart Students and Friends,
Sun, Sea and Spirituality… What a great way to set your course into the New Year!
This retreat is designed to give you both a holiday in the sun and a spiritual retreat, all rolled into one. We will be on the magic island of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, where you will drink some life-giving winter sun deep into your bones, to set you up for the new year.
We are offering three days of emersion in The Emerald Heart Light, separated by a day off between each, allowing you the space to either, integrate, process, ‘shop ‘til you drop,’ or just do whatever takes your fancy, as you enjoy the wonderful ambient temperatures and fresh sea air of Lanzarote.
As always, the Guidance doesn’t reveal what we are going to do until we do it. Some call this living in the now. As I am the leader of the event, I would also like to know what we are going to be doing, so I call it, living on the edge! 🙂 But, as we always discover, the Guidance usually gives us an amazing ride, far in excess of anything we could imagine. Therefore, I fully expect that we will have a fantastic, deep and meaningful spiritual experience as usual, helping to set ourselves on the right course for the coming year.
Lanzarote is a volcanic island, now classed as dormant, although the heat can still be felt beneath the surface at Timanfaya, the site of the last eruptions in 1730, which lasted six years, and finally in 1824. On this beautiful island, we have all the benefit of the wonderful natural elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, and we will use all of these elements in our work.
Our theme at the last retreat in Sweden in August 2013, was Rebirth, and Guidance will, no doubt, be following this with something that will uplift us into the Breath of Life after new birth.
At this point, the itinerary is still a little flexible, as we fill in the blanks, but essentially, we will meet in the mornings in Puerto del Carmen and take our bus to the Retreat Centre.
In the afternoons, we will visit certain natural locations on the island to commune with the spirit of place, connect with the nature spirits and the elements.
I expect there to be a unified process that unfolds over the three days, bringing us to a sense of completion at our final closing circle. Ensure you bring your journals to note down what you experience, as once our altered state of consciousness dissipates, then we often can’t recall what we experienced very clearly.
Make sure you bring your bathing costumes, too!!!
The retreat will take place on Monday 20th, Wednesday 22nd and Friday 24th January, 2014 at the Villa Amatista Retreat Centre at La Vegueta. http://www.villa-amatista.com/
